Hawk wargames haven’t been twiddling their thumbs while teasing us with resistance footage. They’ve also been secretly working on plastic phr and shaltari starter kits. At 35 pounds (55 USD), these kits make it much easier to join the world of Dropzone Commander. The PHR are one of the most popular DzC forces, so the addition of a plastic kit with the reliable Ares and critical Phobos walkers is awesome.
Combined with the launch of the much anticipated Resistance faction and the “Reconquest: Phase 1” expansion, this is an exciting time to be a fan of Hawk’s 10mm sci fi wargame. Resistance forces generally combine post apocalyptic, under resourced guerrilla forces (think Mad Max crossed with the resistance from the Terminator franchise) with high powered ancient artefact machines, such as the hannibal battle tank. Their non-military tech makes up for lack of technology, with large numbers.
Reconquest advances the DzC story, and introduces new missions, characters for each faction, and introduces the rules for the Resistance faction as well as some new game mechanics for DzC.
